Hydrogen in vanadium: Site occupancy and isotope effects
2016 (English)In: PHYSICAL REVIEW B, ISSN 2469-9950, Vol. 93, no 13, 134107Article in journal (Refereed) PublishedText
We discuss the influence of site occupancy on the absorption of the hydrogen isotopes H and D in thin V(001) layers. By growing V(001) under biaxial compressive strain in Fe/V(001) superlattices, the hydrogen (H as well as D) is forced to reside exclusively in octahedral (O-z) sites, even at the lowest concentrations. A weakening of the isotope effects is observed when hydrogen resides in octahedral as compared to tetrahedral sites.
